An experiment has probability p of success, q of failure and 1  p  q of neither, If independent trials are repeated over and over until either success or failure is obtained, what is the probability of an ultimate success?

There are only two outcomes, success or failure. I don't know how you could have neither.
p + q = 1
Therefore, p = 1q
